It is the largest of all institutions affiliated to the ministry of Scientific Research and employs about of all scientists working in these institution.
NRC Is the largest multidisciplinary R&D centre in Egypt devoted to basic and applied research within the major fields of interest.
NRC Possesses an impressive scientific & technological infrastructure and man power resources of 4735 research staff.
NRC Consists of 14 divisions and 108 departments covering the major areas of industry, health, environment, agriculture, basic sciences and engineering.
NRC Is headed by a president with ministerial status, assisted by two vice presidents, one for research and the other for technical affairs. The minister of state for Scientific Research is the higher president of NRC.
